Babymetal will be your graduation song, wedding song, AND funeral song. They’re a band for all seasons, all moods, all milestones. They’re also a bunch of Japanese teen girls who sing over death metal riffs. The group, made up of Su-metal (16 years old), Moametal (14), and Yuimetal (14), formed in 2010 as Sakura Gakuin before changing their name to Babymetal, because “we are newborn, a new genre.”

That genre: dancing to songs about chocolate (and no more bullying) with an avalanche of guitars.

That’s gonna sound really good played in a cemetery.
